Seafarers face many dangers as they bring to you and I, ninety percent of what we will use in our daily lives. The threat of piracy and other reasons, why their ship may not safely reach port, are ever-present concerns. The Mission to Seafarers (MTS), through its many alliances around the world, offers the seafarer a home from home, an opportunity to communicate with loved ones and rest and relaxation whilst in port. The Mission to Seafarers ensures the spiritual and physical wellbeing of seafarers, as well as assisting them with social justice issues.
The Mission to Seafarers in Africa has Flying Angel centres in the major South African ports (Cape Town, Port Elizabeth, Saldanha Bay, Durban and Richards Bay), Walvis Bay, Mombasa, Namibia and Dar Es Salaam.
